Hi! Wow, did January just fly by or what? I was doing so much before I left for the Philippines and have had to hit the ground running as soon as I got back. That's the tricky thing about juggling both a full-time contract and my own projects and I definitely have more than one project outside of work. I mentioned on a previous blog post that Fuzzy Pudgies was in a pop up shop. I managed to get my first shirt design for Fuzzy Pudgies too. Really pleased with how it turned out. I actually painted the brooch for this as well but it's a pretty complicated design so it'll be a very limited edition.
I do love my Melty Kitty shirt. I put 9 in the shop. 3 smalls, 3 mediums and 3 large sizes. Apparently I only have 1 large shirt left by the time the pop up shop shut.
Below are the last batch of brooches I managed to stock before going on vacation. A good chunk sold which I am very happy about. I am always surprised on what sells and what doesn't. There were a few I thought that would sell for sure but didn't and some where I wasn't 100% that people would like it and it walked off the shelf. You just never know I guess.
I painted a whole lot of pet portraits as well for Christmas presents in the last few months of last year but I'll chat about that in another post. I haven't painted any new cats for this year yet but I have plans to release more than just one of brooches for Fuzzy Pudgies. More shirts since I thought they were so cute and maybe a few other things. Make sure to watch this space!
